As much as I'd love to attend the People's Climate March in D.C. it's just not feasible for me, but I still want to do my part and raise awareness. If you would like to join in a peaceful gathering/march to help bring awareness, educate, and ultimately combat global warming, please come and share with your friends! Join us on April 29th at (10:30 am line up!) 11am March starting at Rochester, NY City Hall (30 Church Street -- directly across State Street from the Federal Building!)! The march will end at Washington Square Park (.7 mile route) for a rally beginning at approximately 12pm!!
Action Together will be partnering with the People's Climate Movement - Rochester as well as the Rochester People's Climate Coalition (https://www.facebook.com/
We are planning a family friendly march and rally to highlight the need for changes in our government to protect our world for future generations!

"We believe that in this moment of division, turmoil, and fear, it’s important to put forward an alternative vision that inspires and connects. If we don’t put forward our own vision — of an economy built on justice and powered by clean, renewable energy — then we let fossil-fuel-soaked nationalism, xenophobia, and hatred win. We need to show that people still believe in our shared vision for the future"
In the first People’s Climate March in 2014, 400,000 marched in New York City and hundreds of thousands more people marched in cities around the world. That march made a huge impact, helping drive forward the Paris Climate Agreement and push President Obama to make climate action (including rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline) a priority during his last two years in office.
The motto of that march was “To change everything, we need everyone.” This spring, we’re renewing that vision — to show that our movement is just as ready to fight racism and hatred as we are the fossil fuel industry that’s poisoning our future."
The People’s Climate Mobilization is part of a larger strategy to push back on an agenda of climate denial and fossil fuel expansion, and double-down at the local level fighting fossil fuels and lifting up real climate solutions."
